All is not lost..... Santa might be bringing Mac a quilt after all.
I got FNSI off to a flying start yesterday. I came right in here the minute I got back from taking the cats to the vet and got down to some serious sewing.
I'm thrilled to bits with what I managed to get done....
What a difference eh! I bet the eagle eyed among you can spot a few changes in fabric selection from the ones on the wall yesterday. Choosing fabrics quickly was good but I still found myself unpicking and replacing ones that didn't work for me. Less than I thought though so I reckon I might start trusting my gut a little bit more instead of over thinking everything.
I sorted out the grass and pieced this....
Still need to re stitch the end of the kite string though so I can't really call it a finished block. Then I did this...
I stitched train tracks till I ran out of floss.... just the bottom track to add the 'sleepers' to. Appliqued on the space ship... which still needs a nose cone and windows but I was getting really dog eyed by the time I got to that bit.
Did a bit more of the applique on the robot. Funny.... I needed to replace the grass on that block too for the same reason as the kite.... too narrow! Beats me how I managed that.
This is how my little room looked in the wee small hours of FNSI
I've not done any stitching today... yet. After my late night I slept in this morning! I was almost late for going out to lunch with my Mum. Then we were off to the shops. Not for anything exciting just the usual grocery run.
Right now I'm planning a nice relaxing evening in my recliner working on the last of the stitcheries for Boys Story. There'll maybe be a glass or two of wine in the plan too..... well.... it is my BIRTHDAY! I'm allowed a treat....right!
Hope you've all had a lovely day.... or are about to have one depending where in the world you are
See ya soon....
p.s. I bought more floss today so the train block will be back on track soon.
